Something Different


Online Marketing Goals


I’ve come to realize that online marketing is a fascinating world, and in keeping with the “hacker” spirit, I’ve decided to plunge right into it. Its time to add another hacker layer – so for starters, I just joined Dean Holland’s Quick Start Challenge to get my feet wet, and am looking forward to an interesting experience. Entrepreneurship is indeed one of the most exciting pursuits, you get to wake up and decide what you want to achieve every day ?

So please stay tuned, we hope to launch by June 15th (fingers crossed) !!

    Hi, another one of Dean’s students here!

    I have to say I definitely resonate with that notion of being bogged down by the many little pieces involved in the internet marketing. So easy to just stuck into procrastination when there’s million things you could do. Luckily I’ve been slowly starting to take action lately and Dean’s asskicking program couldn’t come at a better time.

    Good luck for this journey!

      Hi Jarkko,
      Thanks for the note..Yes, I definitely wish I had a techie by my side who could solve all the problems – but then there’d be no learning. This is exciting. Thanks and good luck to you too..

    Wow, a huge dichotomy between your first two posts – one on derivatives and the other on Dean Hollands Quickstart Challenge. It will be interesting to see how this pans out – is it a trading blog or an internet marketing blog?

    As an ex-banker I will be interested to see which way your interests lie.

      Mark, thanks for the note. Yes the dichotomy is glaring, isn’t it ? This is a site focused on helping everyday people understand the financial world we live in and learning to profit from it. We focus on Stocks, Options and ETFs and other instruments as well. As an ex-banker, would love to get your take. Specifically, we cover Options strategies that working professionals can implement without the need to monitor the markets constantly.

      Although the specific instruments are US focused – the concept, theory and application of Options (which is the core focus) apply to any market around the world. The mathematics behind it does not change. The site should be up in less than a week. Will ping you again and you can take a look. Thanks for stopping by

    Hi Hari,

    Hi, another one of Dean’s students here!

    It’s great to see that that you started taking massive action.

    Congratulations with your blog, published posts and your about me page, all good stuff here going on!

    It’s a good thing there’s Dean and a few others to guide us.

    My goal is to make $10 and of course finish all the tasks Dean sets us and after that, keep doing what is required until I will be successful like Dean!

    Good luck to all of us!

    I like the clean look of your site. I think it leads to less confusion and “confused minds say no”. I’m really enjoying Dean’s QSC and I hope you are too.

    Hello Hari,

    I am also participating in Dean’s course. I am making my way around to see how my fellow students are progressing. You have an interesting site and I agree completely with your entrepreneurial desires. Having your own business is something that I’m working towards. Best wishes going forward.

    Hi Hari
    This post is definately “something different” Like Christie I was a bit shocked to start with. Your name “Hacker” also had me wondering where I’d ended up. You have a very proffessional lookingf site. Good luck with the challenge.
